Autumn 1

Week 1


Hello everyone, 


Miss Whitby and Miss Rosenberg here. We would just like to say a massive well done to all the wonderful Polar Bears and Penguins for completing their first week at school! Both classes have settled in beautifully and it has been lovely to watch friendships form. Already we have seen a huge progress in confidence and attitude towards learning.


All children have given 100% in their Maths and Phonics lessons and showed us their individuality and quirky personalities through continuous provision. 


It has been fantastic to get to know them all and we are already excited to see them on Monday.


Please take some time to have a look at the wonderful work your children have produced this week 


Have a fabulous weekend,

Miss Whitby and Miss Rosenberg

Week 2


We have been planting flowers inside wellies to brighten up our F2 garden. We talked about all of the things plants need to grow big and strong. We had so much fun filling the wellies with compost. Come and have a look at our work in the garden area!

Week 3


The children enjoyed their first music lesson this week! We took them out onto the field and they all got the opportunity to play a musical instrument. The lesson focused on teaching the children about the different instruments and the types of sounds they make. We also discussed the word 'rhythm' and how to create one using a number of beats.


In addition, it was lovely to put the finishing pieces onto our 'Watch Us Grow' tree. This tree will show the children's development of writing as the year progresses. All Penguins and Polar Bears painted and cut out their own leaf to add to the tree. We discussed the appropriate colours to paint the leaves and the different shapes of leaves the children may see. They then wrote a word on their leaf to describe themselves, for example 'kind', 'brave' and 'funny'.


Week 4


This week we have been learning about Harvest Festival and we took the children on a trip to the local church. They thoroughly enjoyed exploring the church grounds on a hunt for stained glass windows and were looking forward to making their own in the afternoon. In celebration of Harvest Festival, the children had the opportunity to try some exotic fruits such as: Mango, Pineapple, Watermelon and Kiwi. 

Week 6

Well done Polar bears and Penguins for completing your first half term in Reception!

This week, we have been making medals and crowns for the celebration party, been part of the gingerbread man play and created Halloween pictures.  The children thoroughly enjoyed engaging with the play and becoming the characters in the Gingerbread man story. It was a pleasure to watch them come out of their shell and show us their fantastic acting skills! 


Thank you so much for all your support so far and we look forward to another fun and fabulous half term after the holidays!
